Congresswoman Veronica Escobar to Serve as Vice Chair of the Democratic Women’s Caucus

WASHINGTON   Late Thursday afternoon, the Democratic Women’s Caucus (DWC), formerly the Democratic Women’s Working Group, announced the results of their leadership elections for the 116th Congress.

Congresswomen Lois Frankel (FL-21), Brenda Lawrence (MI-14), and Jackie Speier (CA-14) will serve as Co-Chairs and Congresswomen Veronica Escobar (TX-16) and Deb Haaland (NM-01) will serve as Vice Chairs.

The newly-appointed members released the following statement:

“With more women in Congress than ever before, the Democratic caucus has never been stronger. The new leadership of the Democratic Women’s Caucus stands united in the common purpose of improving the lives of all families by advocating for equal pay for equal work, access to health care, paid family and medical leave, affordable, quality child care, retirement security, combating workplace harassment, and much more. Despite every effort by this administration to take us backwards, our voices remain loud as we keep fighting to push forward on women’s hard-earned rights.”

The Democratic Women’s Caucus is comprised of all the Democratic women in the U.S. House of Representatives and currently has 91 members.
